RE: few ideas
I agree that crash effects are not needed but I would like to see improper procedures damage things. If you red-line your engine through the entire flight, damage. If you go full flaps down at cruise speed, damage. And on and on... I feel that would add a lot to the educational value of the whole thing. There's nothing like going down in flames to remind you to follow proper procedures.
